Nicholas Mitchell Eliminated in 13th Place; Scott Baumstein Advances!

• Level 5: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Nicholas Mitchell - 13th Place
Nicholas Mitchell - 13th Place

Nicholas Mitchell limped in from the button only to have Scott Baumstein bump it up to 12,000. Mitchell moved all in for roughly 150,000 and Baumstein instantly made the call.

Mitchell: {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Baumstein: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop kept Baumstein in a commanding lead, but when the {Q-Diamonds} landed on the turn, Mitchell picked up outs to a flush draw.

Unfortunately for Mitchell, the {J-Spades} would complete the board on the river and send him home in 13th place as Scott Baumstein becomes the eighth player to advance through to the final table.

Lebedev Re-Takes the Lead

[user196942] • Level 5: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Kyle Frey opened for 12,000 on the button and Nikita Lebedev three-bet to 32,000. Frey decided to just call.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and Lebedev c-bet for 40,000. Frey called.

Both players checked the {K-Hearts} turn. However, when the {7-Hearts} completed the board, Lebedev thought for a while and then bet 130,000, which left him with only 39,000 behind. Frey folded.

After that hand, Lebedev is up to 335,000 while Frey has slipped to 265,000.

Mitchell's Aces-Up Best Baumstein's Aces-Up

• Level 5: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Nicholas Mitchell saw his last 107,000 enter the pot with Scott Baumstein making the call.

Mitchell: {A-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Baumstein: {A-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

Although expected to be a chop, the {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs} board would see Mitchell double through to be just better then a two-to-one dog against Baumstein.
